LOL!

I read about this in Men’s Health: the Testosterone Diet.(Because I like having testosterone, I saw it in the library, and I’m also a man who likes to be healthy)It said the amount released when you hold your breath is negligible. Lung capacity is a wonderful thing though, especially if you like diving and underwater swimming like I do. Perhaps the amount released goes straight to enlarging the lungs.
